UK Police To Twitter Shame Drivers Caught Drinking And Driving . . .


UK Police To Twitter Shame Drivers Caught Drinking And Driving

Cited at:

We all know that drinking and driving is a huge no-no, but yet for some reason many people choose to keep doing it anyway, as if they are under the impression that they’re not that drunk when in reality they are. Well it looks like the police in Sussex and Surrey over in the UK have had enough of this.

So what are they going to do about it? Well the fact remains that despite all the public announcements, drunk drivers will still exist so the police are hoping that publicly shaming them on the internet could be a good way to get them to stop, and to hopefully deter others from following in their footsteps.

The police will be tweeting their stops and arrests where each tweet will contain the location where the motorist was pulled over, and for those who are eventually charged will have their names broadcasted on the police’s Twitter account. Police will also be putting up posters to show where exactly these motorists have been stopped.

Will this work? Well hopefully it will but we suppose only time will tell. In any case with the holiday season coming up, do be careful on the road and remember, don’t drink and drive!
